Thank you for being a firecracker.



Little was off-limits in the show. She discussed the scandal that engulfed her superstar parents, Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher (he ran off with Elizabeth Taylor); her brief marriage to singer Paul Simon; the time the father of her daughter left her for a man; and the day she woke up next to the dead body of a platonic friend who had overdosed in her bed.

“I’m a product of Hollywood inbreeding. When two celebrities mate, something like me is the result,” she said in the show. At another point, she cracked: “I don’t have a problem with drugs so much as I have a problem with sobriety.”

“She was funnier&smarter than anyone had the right to be,” Whoopi Goldberg wrote on Twitter Tuesday. “Sail On Silver Girl. Condolences Debbie & Billie.”

“Hail Hail! A genius has vacated this realm-RIP Carrie Fisher,” Roseanne Barr posted on the site.

      • A good question that’s hard to answer because bipolar manifests itself so differently for individuals. It could be a result of her manic periods, but I don’t think so. I am completely open and honest with everyone about having bipolar, while most people choose not to, however, I’m not nearly as gregarious as Carrie. I don’t know where her honestly comes from, but maybe it’s from being raised since day one in the public spotlight. Her outgoing and funny attitude could be for the same reason as well.

      • I think it can be the bipolar. I am known for my honesty. It’s like a reflex. I cannot think up a lie or a twisted truth. Blaaaaah, honesty just falls out my mouth. I offend people sometimes. It could be the lack of social filters/boundaries that are a symptom of bipolar. I love curious questions

    • Yes, it’s very sad, but I have to say that she seems to have lived the life she wanted to lead. So much courage, so much pain, yet so much laughter. She definitely deserves peace. A true inspiration.
